The Winona State University women’s tennis team ended their regular season play this April 13 on home turf in Winona.

On Friday, April 12, they faced the 5th ranked National Collegiate Athletic Association central regional St. Cloud State University. This ranking did not faze the team, as they won their match 8-1 over SCSU.

All three of the doubles team were victorious on the day. The team of Erin Kappers and Hannah Potter went 8-1. Brianna Havelka and Jessica Urban posted an 8-2 win. The last team consisting of Brittney Freund and Laura Lindstrand, went 8-5 to defeat their opponents.
